More About Stan Berenstain & Jan Berenstain
Stan and Jan Berenstain were both born in 1923 in Philadelphia. They didn't know each other as children, but met later at school, at the Philadelphia College of Art. They liked each other right away, and found out that the both enjoyed the same kinds of books, plays, music and art. During World War II, Stan was a medical assistant in the Army, and Jan worked in an airplane factory. When the war was over, they got married and began to work together as artists and writers, primarily drawing cartoons for popular magazines. After having their two sons Leo and Michael, the Berenstains decided to write some funny children's books that their children and other children could read and enjoy. Their first published children's book was called The Big Honey Hunt. It was about a family of bears, who later became known as the "Berenstain Bears." Stan and Jan planned all of their books together. They both wrote the stories and created the pictures. They continued to live outside of Philadelphia in the country. There are now over 300 Berenstain Bears books.
Stan Berenstain lived in Solebury, in the state of Pennsylvania. Stan Berenstain was born in 1923 and died in 2005.

The Berenstain Bears Meet Santa Bear (First Time Books) Nov 29, 2008
ISBN 0394968808 - Another Christmas book that starts right around Thanksgiving, a small negative in my opinion, but I admit to laughing out loud that Mama Bear agreed with me on the first page, saying "It seems to me that the Christmas season starts earlier every year." I'm reading my way through piles of Christmas books right now and was happy to find the Berenstain Bears in the pile.
Two days after Thanksgiving, the Bear family - like so many others - hits the mall. The children, in response to too many TV toy commercials, seem nearly giddy and beg to be able to return when Santa Bear visits the mall. At home, they make their lists; Brother's is short and neat, but Sister's is long and messy and, worse, makes her appear very greedy. Brother explains to her why this is wrong and she re-writes it before the big day arrives. The family visits Santa, shops and prepares for the holiday and Papa Bear is there to answer Sister's questions about Santa - and to teach her that Santa has the best job in the world, because Christmas is all about the joy of giving, a lesson that is confirmed for her on Christmas morning.
With a simple story teaching more than one nice message, the Berenstains manage to tell a Christmas tale without relying on the re-telling of a Christmas classic; this is a great thing, in my opinion, because there really are just so many tellings of the classics that any one parent can stand. The text is fairly simple, appropriate for the 4-8 age group, and the illustrations are standard Berenstains, bright and colorful with lots of cute little "bear" details in them. Little ones won't even realize that they're learning.
